You were not hallucinating: the moon did turn red for nearly three hours early Tuesday morning (April15) thanks to the rare lunar event known as the Blood Moon.
Los Angeles got a great view of the sky show, which caused the moon to take on a reddish color when it crossed through Earth's shadow from 2:00 to 4:30 a.m. ET. And the stars were clearly out, as everyone from Katy Perry to Miley Cyrus, Lil Wayne, Ellie Goulding and Usher were mooning about the trippy event.
Here's a sampling of their reactions:
